Purplerabbit! Give me a warning before you change positions! The balance on the bus went funny and now the steering is wonky!

Glad it's releasing soon! Unfortunately for me, the earliest I'll get to play is going to be Friday night. I know I'm going to go insane... LOL

I can't believe it's the end already. Have fun if you're able to play already tomorrow (I work tomorrow, but then I'm off the rest of the week).

It's been a blast reading everyone's ideas, poems, songs, chants, games, etc., etc.

I'm sure I'll see some of you around in Posey's and the Big Bang Theory threads.

Purplerabbit I'm a bit worried about you up there! If it starts to rain who knows what could happen with all the talk of radiation in the area

*scales up the side ladder and covers Purplerabbit in a large tarp complete with eye holes and gill cut outs*

Arrrgh that's better! Now back inside to find a comfy spot

My direct message just said "poster".

I've got a couple movie scores for the bus' stereo system -- I'm not much of a rock fan, I prefer classical. The "Gettysburg" score (Randy Edelman) might be better for downloading background; for the countdown to release may I recommend the restored Sergei Prokofiev score to "Alexander Nevsky"? That one's energetic enough that I put it in the CD player whenever I have writer's block.

:: passes hot spiced cider and hot cocoa around the bus :: It's been a good spec thread, let's do this again next year .

We represent the Fishie Pond Guild

And in the name of

We wish to welcome you to Shadow Lake

ROTFL!!! Thanks!

I'm off to sleep so I can get up for the 3 AM download! Have a great night!

MJ_Mystery: Maybe fishies who had multiple questions selected are getting a free game (?).

Eoarod: Mme. Fate bobblehead!! BFG, MAKE THIS HAPPEN How can our bus have a whale shark on the roof, minnow hood ornament, and no dashboard accoutrements?

Dogmama: It was a pleasure You gave me plenty of impressive material to work with that made the task all that more rewarding

Sam: Sorry to hear about your run-in with a poisonous centipede I think I'm the only person on earth who thinks cents are cute, but the ones we have are benign little skitters. If they were poisonous, I'm sure I'd be exterminating them with extreme prejudice!

Oh, and you're welcome to join me for T-Day dinner in spirit...I'll direct turkey/stuffing/green bean casserole/mashed potatoes/pumpkin pie vibes to South Korea on Thursday

purplealikat: I'll gladly take some marshmallows for my peppy schnapped hot chocolate Maybe I'll let a few go stale for ammo. *fingers crossed that there's a slingshot in the MCF inventory*

Welp, my anti-virus program caught a nasty buggie attempting a hostile takeover of my computer, and I don't think Saskatil's bug wrangling expertise extends to *this* kind of creepy crawlie. So I'm off to run a few scans to make certain all is clear. There won't be any sick 'puters around here spoiling the MCF release!

I guess I'll see everyone back here for the post-game wrap-up

The busload of fishies is starting to get antsy.

Fog is starting to swirl in the ruts beside the road.

Up ahead there is a signpost.

Shadow Lake 6 hours to go.

My mouse fin is starting to twitch.

The second pot of is smelling strong.

My crowbar is ready, and my lock picks too.

My MCF badge is pinned on.

And farewells are coming faster than a dead fish down a toilet.

Another spec thread draws to a close.

And all the fishies turn into Master Detectives and disappear down a hole.

Will we return next year?

Goodness gracious great balls of fire YEAH!!!!!

Well, I'm handing over the steering wheel to someone else. This little fishie has to get up early for work. Will download the game as soon as I get home. Said something to DH about downloading tomorrow night and saving the game to play all day Wednesday. He just looked at me and said, "yeah, right."

Wonder if they'll keep this thread open for us to discuss what theories were right like they did last year? Either way, this is my last post here before the game comes out. Hope to see all of you around the pond and definitely back here next year!!!

Note to next bus driver: make sure Purplerabbit's tarp is lashed down properly. Wouldn't want the bus to take flight!

Happy Sleuthing!!!!

Goodnight cadfael I've just installed "roofcam" to keep an eye on Purplerabbit and the tarp situation. All's good for now although if the tarp did cause us to take flight we might shave off some travel time

Okay so I'll do my best behind the wheel but geez the steering on this old girl is a workout! Just popping on a tune for y'all to groove to.....

(to the tune of Madonna's "celebrate")
